Cancer Research UK's 'Shine Walk 2018' took place in London on Saturday 22nd September 2018 and Vascoft's very own Finance Director, Ashwin Vora and Chief Operating Officer, Chandni Vora took part in the full marathon!

'Shine Walk' is Cancer Research UK's flagship night walk, bringing people from across the UK together to light up London and fund life-saving research. 

Ashwin and Chandni took part this year and walked 26 miles in 6 hours 42 minutes through the night. The 26 mile stretch around London started from Southwark Park to Old Billingsgate, and the route coincidentally bypassed many of Vascroft's projects, past and present along the way. This included, The Dorchester  and Alford House on Park Lane, Millennium Hotel off Grosvenor Street, and Queensbridge House on the home stretch - Upper Thames Street. 

Well done to you both for this amazing achievement for a worthy cause.

The site management at VCL's Queensbridge House site, arranged a seminar with the City of London Police to educate our workforce on ‘Modern Slavery’. The purpose of the seminar was to educate VCL's workforce on the definition of Modern Slavery and how the workforce can spot the signs of this taking place. Whilst there is no definitive figure for the scale of modern slavery in the UK, the construction industry has been identified as one of the four sectors most susceptible to this type of crime in its direct business operations and supply chains.

The presentation was carried out on behalf of City of London Police by PC Anne King and Kiran Backhouse

Spanning over a period of two days, Watford saw approximately 50,000 people gather in Bhaktivedanta Manor (Krishna Temple) , in honour of celebrating Lord Krishna's Birthday. As Vascroft are constructing a new Haveli on the Manor's site, they seized the opportunity to create some fun by setting up a safe designated play area consisting of supervised activities such as pretend brick laying and 'building your own Haveli' with giant blocks. 

This was a huge success on the day and many children came and enjoyed the experience of being builders for the day! Loads of positive feedback was received from the temple devotees and the various dignitaries who attended on the day.

Many thanks to Bhanubhai, Kurjibhai, Gurdip and their entire team for making this possible.
